When printing, a solid stroke prints fine but a gradient stroke does not print at all. Any ideas?

I assume you're using Inkscape 0.45.1? Printing in that version (and earlier) was done via postscript, which doesn't support gradients. You should try against Inkscape 0.46-pre0 (Preview Release). Alternately, you can export the file as bitmap, and print that using Gimp, Firefox, or other programs.

Thanks for the info. I am now able to get my figures to print.
